Mahalo to Pacific Source, the Builder’s Choice, for sponsoring Maui Non Profit Notes, our weekly radio show which has aired on KAOI radio for the past nine years. Each week two member agencies tell real life stories about how they‘re working to support the needs within our community, the sharing of experiences, the histories of the issues our agencies face on a daily basis, the needs in our community. From serving the very young to the seniors, from medical issues to societal issues, from offering that hand up to sometimes when that outstretched hand gives the lift that makes all the difference in the world to someone in need.  Join host Susie Thieman for Maui Non Profit Notes from noon-1 pm each Wednesday.
